WHY GET INTO TRAVEL & TOURISM?
The advancement of technology, the growth of aviation and easy transport facilities and the opportunity to explore new places has enabled people around the world to travel more. This thirst to explore the unknown & the unseen has led to tremendous growth in the Travel & Tourism industry worldwide.
In 2011, India attracted 8 million tourists (approx.) from around the world - a growth of 12.35% over the previous year (Source: Bureau of Immigration).
Apart from traditional business and sightseeing-oriented travel, niche sectors such as medical tourism, cruises, backpacking, etc. too have taken off. The industry brings in huge amounts of foreign exchange; all currencies, from dollars to pounds to Euros, are brought into the country by international travellers.
On the other hand, outbound travel from India is growing too. Every year, approximately 10 million Indians travel abroad, with an average growth of 16% in this number each year.
Such growth has increased the demand for well-trained, qualified travel professionals to offer diverse services in this sector.
